Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Over in a Flash - hopefully will be a reoccurring challenge.

I stole this idea (with permission) from the SOS: Serious Overload of Series group.

Over in a Flash ~ Cover Hunt & Theme Challenge ~
Duration: September 1st through September 30th.

Rules: Choose two of the three 3 options below. Color may be the predominant color of the book, or a “pop” of color that catches your eye. Holidays are explained. Items may be found on the cover, or the word found within the storyline. Be sure to post your book covers, dates read, and star ratings. You may join at any time during the month. Feel free to do all three, or more, if you want.

Member Choosing: Nichole has been a GoodReads member since November, 2011, and a participant of Happily Ever After Café since January, 2013. She calls herself a “late reader,” as she just started reading about eight years ago. She loves ALL kinds of Romance; however, Paranormal is probably her favorite – right now, anyway! She’s a self-proclaimed nerd; even her maiden initials were NRD :) She’s been married for 12 years to her Teddy Bear husband. (She declares he gives the best hugs!) She smiles and laughs a lot; loves to joke around.

COLORS: Her favorite: Blue!

SEPTEMBER THEMES: (1) 1. Labor Day: {September 2nd} Read a book where someone labors over a difficult task. Or a woman goes into labor. (2) Heroes: {September 11th} Read a book where the main character performs a heroic act, or is a noted hero. (3) National Women’s Friendship Day: {September 15th} Read a book where the main female character has a close friendship with another woman. (4) Chinese Moon Festival: {September 15th} Read one with a moon on the cover, or is of the Paranormal Romance genre. (5) Talk Like A Pirate Day - Aargh: {September 19th} Read a pirate book!


ITEMS: September’s Birthstones are sapphire, chrysolite, zircon, and lapis lazuli. Its flower is the aster. Zodiac Signs are Virgo or Libra. Other cover items are chickens (it is National Chicken Month - LOL!), apples, leaves, school, or schoolhouse.
